Div I LHSAA champ game might be at Yulman Stadium
LINK

Supposedly the top 4 seeds are all thinking this could work.

I know there was discussion earlier that all 4 select games might be at a single site such as ULL. I guess that fell apart?

Parking would be a nightmare for that. Memorial would be a terrible idea.

When reached by phone, Kelly along with Johnny Curtis at John Curtis Christian School and Mark Wisniewski of Brother Martin all like what Yulman offers as a newer facility opened in 2014. Other stadium options include Tad Gormley Stadium in New Orleans or Memorial Stadium in Baton Rouge.

Maybe a dumb question but why aren’t they in the dome this year?

Should use Tad Gormley.

At least there would be parking. Yulman would be a disaster

Because the Dome fricks the select teams with regard to dates and times of games.

It had a lot to with the bye weeks leading up to the state title games because select had to wait on non select who has more teams and rounds to get through

Teams in select with byes would have two weeks off before first playoff game and two weeks off before title game

There was no reason for select to wait

Friday night sounds like a good time to have it since that is normal high school windows during season and playoffs - plus you don't want to play on Sat Dec 7th if LSU is in the SEC title game

There is a chance ULL will end up hosting the Sunbelt championship game on the same weekend. That'll be cleared up in the next few weeks but may be too late for the championships.

because select teams are only going to pull in players' families no matter if they play at noon on Wednesday or 7 PM Saturday night.

Curtis, Catholic,-BR, and other 5A selects won’t draw anything for their game?

the article said-

While Catholic League games draw good crowds, Kelly noted how the 30,000-seat structure could provide a sellout-type feeling with a large-school championship game held there.

It's not the dome... it's the LHSAA

Wait, what???

The Div I game will have no problem drawing a crowd, even if it's Curtis, and the Div IV game will outdraw the 1A and maybe 2A game.

Class 4A and 3A might outdraw Div II and Div III but it would be close.

When Rummel played Barb, Byrd and Catholic for state, the Plaza and Lodge sections in the Dome were filled to capacity...

Playing outside in December is a risky proposition. Finals were in Shreveport in 05 after Katrina. Think it was rainy and in the 40s.

The select teams are going to make bank compared to the checks for games in the Dome.

The state of Louisiana has teams readying for the playoffs and the governing bodies still don’t know where they will host championships? What a joke.
